4:33 pm
specifically involved the murdered federal investigator. >> the parole agent has alleged that that's a violation, that he was -- that was a term and condition of his parole not to have contact with her. >> reporter: in fact, the judge described it as numerous contacts which only adds to a growing list of questions. why did alana's parole guidelines specifically involve coke? what was the nature of their contacts prior to her disappearance and death? and why was alana arrested at this oakland motel on may 9th only to be released as little as 34 days later less than two months before the night coke disappeared? >> information during the investigation was developed that randy alana and sandra coke were seen later that evening. >> now, most of the documents that could shed more light on all of this are sealed. it's because the investigation into coke's death is still in the hands of oakland police. no indication as to when the case will be handed over to the district attorney's office. accused serial killer

tamper with evidence. >> so far, he has not explained one thing other than to demean the prosecution's case and their experts. >> reporter: in some cases, naso added more incriminating facts the jury did not know, like picking up 1993 victim pamela parsons as a hitchhiker. naso says he is no killer. >> he is coming off as an ego maniac who knows more than everyone else and i don't think that's the way you want to come off in a capital case when you're the person charged with four murders. >> reporter: ryan takeo combination. >> naso just finished a few minutes ago. he is expected to continue monday. >> one of the bay area's favorite attractions is apparently coming up short on attendance. the exploratorium is going to lay off dozens of workers just four months after moving into its new 3$00 million facility on the waterfront of san francisco. the popular hands on museum will let seasonal workers go and leave vacant position unfilled. >> the skills that people bring

4:47 pm
hit him. this time we can. so , you know, we're looking forward to it. >> hope we smack him up. he don't play for our team anymore. we are still friends off the field but when we play each other, i don't root for him to do well. >> reporter: you spoke with alex before game. a little butterflies or is it just another preseason game? >> i think it's just another preseason game. i did ask him how it will feel about the team that drafted you number one eight years. he said it would be weird at first but at the end of the day it's just a preseason game. if it was real football the stakes would be higher and he would feel different. i think he will play well. >> reporter: tim ryan, i think the 49ers fans will see more of smith than expected initially. how long do you think he will play? >> half. i really do. we have seen that here in this trend in week 2 of the preseason. i think again i think he is going to play well. there's a lot of concepts in this andy reed west coast offense that are simple floor what greg roman likes to run
4:48 pm
offensively so especially in the short intermediate passing game i would expect him to have success. >> big battles in the 49ers that continues through the next three games now and especially the backup quarterback. colin is fine. what about the backup? >> that's a huge question mark. there's no doubt when they traded alex smith away to the chiefs the quarterback position without question got weaker. so i think scott showed us last week he has a handle and command of this offense he knows where he is going with the ball. the interception was not his fault. the receiver ran the wrong route. we'll see him tonight and colt mccoy, i think the jury is still out. he wasn't good last week a 22 rating. now to his defense he had constant pressure in his face in those 7 pass attempts that he threw. tonight if it were me to get a fair evaluation of mccoy i would get him in behind the offensive line. sometimes in the first past see how he reacts. >> kim we probably went over in time. he thought he was doing his

show. >> sorry. >> let's go back to san francisco. the 49ers and the chiefs, coming up. kim? >> no problem. great stuff, guys. looking forward to the broadcast. >> forbes released a list of the league's most valuable franchises. the cowboys were number one valued at $2.3 billion. the 49ers ranked tenth. noon of the league's 32 -- nine of the league's 32 teams were valued under $1 billion. the raiders at a bargain $825 million. the 49ers have certainly taken stock in their secondary ticket safety eric reed. vern glenn on the rookie who jim harbaugh had his eye on long before he became head coach. >> it's not that bad actually. i'm from louisiana so i'm used to the hot, humid sun beating down camps. >> reporter: the 49ers are hoping first round pick eric reid can handle the heat, handle the spotlight and
4:50 pm
replace desean goldson at safety. >> the body rocker. >> just to see him be able to make some plays out here has kind of big, you know, rewarding because he has been put into a position where he has a chance to take over for a really good safety. >> reporter: reid nearly ended up in the bay area four years earlier when jim harbaugh, who was then the head coach at stanford, did his best to convince reid to play for the cardinal. >> we really connected, talked through the whole process, and this timer rick had no choice in the matter. >> i wasn't recruited very hard by many schools because they knew that i was born and raised in louisiana that i was most likely going to go to lsu. he was the only other school outside of lsu that recruited me. that's something i'll be able to say the rest of my life an ivy league school that coach harbaugh had an interest in me. >> reporter: he would have fit in. he had a 4.6 gpa in his senior year of high school and his notetaking skills have already
4:51 pm
made a huge impression on fellow safety donte whitner a former first round pick himself who likes what he sees with reid in the classroom and on the field. >> it's been a first round pick always asking questions, you know, when the coaching staff get on him for doing something wrong or another player get on him never any back talk or any lash back. so, you know, he is going to be a really good player in the national football league. >> reid is one of four players competing for that free safety position. still to come, he is a three-time pro bowler and hasn't taken an offensive snap since 2011. but kasim is turning heads as wide receiver. we'll introduce you to him next. ,, ,,,,
